50:1 ratio = a little less than 3 ounces per US gallon. That works out to be about 90 ml per 3.8L.

I would add that the 50:1 ratio applies if you are using synthetic two-stroke oil. If you're using plain mineral two-stroke, then 32:1 is probably a safer route for a bike of that age.

Downside of too much oil: Stinky exhaust and possibly a fouled plug.

Downside of not enough oil: Potentially catastrophic engine damage.

Err on the side of too rich.
