Just wanted to show after swapping from 2 stroke to 4 stroke with torque converter. What a difference there is since it is a heavy bike and fatter wheel plus 195 riding on top of it. Can anyone direct me to front brakes for the chopper. Currently have none. Just rode it to test it out for the first time today.

Here's what I've got. My bike is also thr "tribal" version and the front brakes might be special to the tribal.

You lucked out mine has no such thing :( I was looking for brake adapters that sit on the fork. But can't find any that fit the fork.

That is a tough call trying to fit a disc brake set up on what you have. A new hub that you could bolt a disc on would be the essential start.
To get rim brakes going you need a cross brace to put a side pull rim brake or studs on the fork tubes like GW has on his to make V brakes happen.
I'm sure someone else will have better ideas but this is my take on it.

If you go the the trouble of making a brace you could make it tall enough to make a top mount to accommodate a center pull rim brake.
