For premix oil I would suggest:

Any good quality, motorcycle oil should be ok for the tranny/clutch. 10W-40 should be fine. Here is one example:

I would use the premix ratio as indicated on the bottle or perhaps slightly richer. Modern oil is vastly superior to what was available back in 1965 so even if you had the original owner's manual, those ratios would not apply to modern oil.

So if the bottle says 50:1 I would suggest going to maybe 40:1. Also, use high test gasoline to avoid ethanol.
