It looks like it moves either air or fluid since it has holes in it.

I could be wrong, but I don't at this point think anyone knows.
Is it a trick question that you know the answer to?

Vote one for year-round riding! Austone Darksider PVT (Passenger Vehicle Tire)

Most recent Wing: 128k+ on the 2000 GL1500 SE (Just totaled) due to being rear-ended...

Previous wings: '78GL1000, 13k mile '77 GL1000 (resto at home, neat story!), '81 GL1100 Interstate.

That looks like a deer flute, not to be confused with a deer whistle.

My guess would be part of an old Scottoiler. Looks like a drip feed for a drive chain so no idea what it would be doing on your bike.

I was close. It seems to be the oil feed for the internal drive chain. Here's one for sale on ebay

FleaBay sellers can and do make outrageous claims.
Without a Honda part number it's still just something found in a box.
