Question about 1987 Honda GL 1200 Aspencade Gold Wing
When letting go of handle bars at low speed or high speed the front end begins to shake, used to beable to put the cruise controll on and let go and it would go straight as an arrow.

I have the same problem but i finally had it fixed.
Your front rim is warped. Have it aligned. Balancing alone would not do the trick as this would only balance the wheel on its vertical axis. (assuming they were able to balance it properly)
Jack the front end up and turn the wheel.. Have a screwdriver or any thing that can serve as a guide with the rim, turn the wheel and if it touches the screw at some point of the turn , then the wheel is misaligned. A new stock rim would cost too much so have it aligned with a good machine shop.
To give you an idea of what im talking about:
There's also a chance that the fork fluids would cause this. Fluid levels should be equal. (less likely)
Hope this helps!
I'd appreciate a feedback!

I had the same problem with mine last year. I put a new tire on it and had it balanced. The vibration went away. I would at least have your tire balanced.
