Pessimistic answer: Seems to me that you want to echo what Stata does without doing it directly in Stata. In this case that is at least difficult. 

Optimistic answer: You must plug coefficients and data into the RHS of the correct logit equation. 

At this point, fractional polynomial people would be saying that you'd better off using fractional polynomials.

But is predict not a post estimation command? How can I then use the same weights? Sorry if this is a stupid question but I have spend a frustrating looooong time on this!
