Two of my bikes came with front disc brakes and I installed them on another one. I had to weld on a caliper mount to the fork on that one. Avid is a good brand and is a quality made product. Remember, the larger the rotor diameter the better the stopping power. Go as big as you can fit.
Thank you Tom. Good to know about Avid.
