After market air cleaners?

Wasn't sure exactly where to post so here it goes. Had to take the stock air box off my 1985 VN700A1 today and after looking at the bike and seeing how convienient it is to get to everything I'm not putting it back on. I want an aftermarket aircleaner that will mount to the carbs and still accept the stock hoses. I don't mind getting new longer length hoses as long as all gets reconnected. Any suggestions? Thanks for any and all help.

Do a search for "Ear shave" use 52mm filters, rejet and needle shims. The hardest part is removing the stock surge tank.

87 vn750at least that is what the frame #'s say
"Squirrel Bike" aka Jersey

Rat bike with a good PR agent

shaved and coastered
2 into 1 exhaust
rear 170 and front 110
Relocated R/R
custom dash with voltmeter
Spitfire windscreen
Plutonium plugs
Recovered seat without "butt hammers"
More to come
Praise to the Parts Goddess Crobins for needed things

When someone tells me "Great minds think alike" all I can think is "You Pervert"

Here is another less common earshave with a single oval shaped filter hidden under the seat:
