I get the same thing in my 71.  Yesterday as I was driving through Denver
my pedal went soft on me like I had taken in some air.  When I stopped to
check it my M/C was completely dry.  I filled it back up, pumped the
brakes and they came back so I am still working on where I lost and entire
M/C worth of fluid in a day with no apparent leaks.
