More fuel capacity

My "touring " bike is an old 1997 Kawasaki VN1500-C2 (cruiser) fitted with a screen and some big Kappa panniers. Most things work for me so I'm happy with the bike, except for one thing.............the tank capacity, it's miniscule with a range if about 100 miles! I have seen the Tour Tank type thing from the USA but they are expensive and a pain to get here. So I'm thinking that there may be an answer here in the UK. Does anyone know, or have any ideas, what i can do to extend my range? I would like to roughly double the fuel storage so that would mean another 15L but anything would be good!
