Default DIY illumina adapters

Hi All:
Trying to determine whether I can get away with making my own adapters for the HiSEQ 2000.
I've got a library of small DNA (125nt) fragments, and would like to sample the diversity of this library pre- and post-selections.

I get it that there is that funky fork with a Phosphorothioate Bond...and that the Tm of the sequencing primer is in the high 70s. Has anyone built their own adapters, or should I just buy the genomic DNA prep kit...?

Also, I am not compiling huge contigs, but rather, assessing the diversity of the library through selections...what, other than the QC descriptions, do I need to assess this diversity? Can someone point me towards the PERL scripts that would process these data into counted bins of reads?
