Love it !!

Like I mentioned in your other topic these LL's are called "Schwabel"

You could also alter the yokes/triple trees to what we call "Ed Pols platen" overhere.

I do have a technical drawing for them on my computer somewhere ( specifically for the MZ ) still have to have them made for my own MZ someday.

VW beetle steering dampers are only $30USD, and you will need a eight gallon fuel tank next.

A CHEAP way to improve steering is to find a set of LEADING AXLE FORKS that are the same dia as your stock forks.Mount them in your STOCK triple clamps and you have reduced the trail !!!.I did this on my outfit for $40 which included the forks,wheel,tire,fender and calipers !!.

And a fork-brace on the sliders helps to stiffen the steering action, too. On my MZ-outfit in the 80s I had situations in really tight turns, that with the handle-bar at the left or right stop the frontwheel was still pointing straight - ok, not quite, but much of it.

Love your rig, basic, does the job and the family image is awesome, good for you.
About the wobbles, be sure all the rigging is singing tight, flex = wobbles. Low tire pressures or too little toe in also = wobbles. Even slightly loose adjustment on head or swingarm bearings or worn wheel bearings = wobbles. I have found if all these things are good it is very rare one gets the wobbles,,,and avoid the whiskey = wobbles!

Keep it simple, find and fix the root cause.

Lastly, do the wide handlebar thing, it will do the job and for waaaaaaay less money, it will help eliminate the wobbles but zero bragging rights, you'll never be the farkle king.
