Is your master cylinder the original, if so, its not really that big and I cant think of a booster that is going to be smaller. I have the original in mine and it works great and is pretty small compared to alot that I have seen.

I guess what is cheapest is a minitruck powersteering conversion as the units can be had for little money. I've seen mini guys selling their PS boxes for $50. Fab up the bracket to bolt it on to the cruiser steering mounts or buy one.

The brake booster of a minitruck is a lot flatter than a cruiser's. You can use one up to the time they went to Tacomas (when the diameter got larger that it hits the clutch MC if installed in a cruiser). Alternatively you can use a pre-76 cruiser booster, they are also flatter.
