i had an m1 once an it took a rear caliper with a hope adaptor
hope adaptors have numbers you need to find out what number will fit fit your frame either take it to a shop that know what they are doing an stock hope parts or ask on a forum like ride io (google it)

if i remeber corect the adaptor has to sit quite high for the caliper to fit
you could sit a standard is mount caliper on the disc an measure the distance from the frame to the disc mount this will give you a rough idea

photo doesn't work.


.... but a quick google shows that the swingarm has lugs for a rear brake so 90% of the work is done - a matter of find/making the adapter for the appropriate brake calliper - it may not need an adapter.

A2Z and Hayes accroding to this <-- linky

that is if your frame is like this.
