Need an air filter solution!

So when I bought my stock 85 VN700 it still had the 27 year old air filters on it. As soon as I removed them the foam coating the plastic and wire frame just fell apart as soon as I touched it. New stock filters run about 50 bucks and I'm practically flat broke at the moment (I just graduated college and am unemployed). My solution as been to run the bike without any foam... so basically no filters at all. It's been about 1000 miles of driving it like that and I really don't want to continue doing that.

I was wondering if anyone has some old ones laying around that they wouldn't mind letting go of, or if you have a suggestion as to how I could fabricate something cheap that would work for a while.
