I do not know the oil volume or level spec, but a lot of bikes from this vintage used Automatic Transmission Fluid, or just motor oil.
I would guess 30 weight would be a starting point, change to lighter or heavier if the fork action is poor.

Someone in the classic community will know the answers.

I have just put Citroen LHM Hydraulic fluid in mine. Partly on I have some left over in my cupboard, and partly as Citroen say you can use ATF in their hydraulic systems in an emergency. Put 90ml in each leg. Will report back after my trip round the hills of Northern Portugal.
