junction box issues

trying to hang a new fixture in a early 1900s home. was hoping to make this old metal, odd junction that the old light hung from work. is there an easier solution than tearing up my ceiling and hoping i find a stud to attatch a new style junction box to ?

The box and hanger above is your best bet. If you have an attic and have access, you can save some money and just use a 2x4.

Gotta picture of the old "box" you are dealing with? Does it have a threaded hickey for hanging fixtures?
