Most of the people here whom restore bikes will tell you to keep watching ebay until you find the correct airbox for cheap (they will pop up, I got an 1983 Yamaha YZ490 airbox for $28).

Yet as a Teen I had a buddy who's dad was great at fabricating parts (he was a Janitor by trade and not a metal worker) and when a bike was missing an airbox, he would just use the front airbox mounts to start with and build a basic square airbox out of sheet metal.

Same guy welded my frame on my 1982 Suzuki RM125. Never once had a problem with it. In typing this out, I actually need to track him down to do some work on a few of my bikes.
