Hi Pete,
The original is basically a 5/8" diameter steel tube, 11" long, bent at 15 deg at mid-point with a flange 5/8" from each end. There should also be a mesh screen inside the tube at the engine end which is missing from the one in the picture. Rubber grommets locate it in the head and the airbox. Let me know if you need any other dimensions.
Where are you located?

Edit: Found the mesh screen. Fine copper mesh soldered into a cone...
