Have a look on ebay for the enfield bullet military ones.
The MT500 ones are getting scarce now and would be a shame to cut about

Why not buy 1 litre fuel cans that neatly fit into pannier boxes You can stow 3 vertically in each pannier box and still have some storage space left Alternatively strap a can onto the rear rack As you must have fabrication skills to do the job you're planning why not make rear racks to hold cans as has been done before by MT Pocket

The chinese knock offs of the Rotopax fuel cans are pretty good and cheaper in total than just the mount for a genuine Rotopax. They just U-bolt to a section of frame or bolt to a hard pannier box and take up less space and weight than a jerry can. Beats paying through the nose for scarce MT500 parts and then butchering them I'm sure.
