Is it bad enough that you can't make it stop?

Mine tries to wag at around 25 mph, but it stops doing it pretty as you please if I hold the bars a little tighter.

Back when I was talking to Claude about hooking the Velorex to the Hawk, he said that if you have tapered roller bearings in your steering head (but /not/ ball bearings), you can tighten the steering head down a little more than you're supposed to and it'll take care of the head-shake. Without having to install a steering damper.
