Place the bike on a stand or crate so the front wheel is off the ground. Give the front tyre a whack with a rubber mallet and listen for the rattle. Move balance of bike forward so rear is free of ground and repeat on rear tyre. Your bound to find some more rattles. Periodical maintenance should include test tighten all bolts, nuts and screws, because that's what holds you above the ground!!

What causes a rattling noise from my front Wheeles when going over bumps or even on a slightly rough tar road only, on freeway the sound is gone and forgoten, I drive a city golf sport, 1994 module

i used to drive a mk2 golf but now drive a mk1 and i had the same problem, especially when am turning. with my case when i had the rattling problem the cv joint boots needed to be replaced as they were worn out. that is one possible answer to your question. if youre DIY guy you might wanna check that out or go to your mechanic and he might tell you the same thing.

Front end rattle

It's a loose steering column. Remove the black plastic shield under the steering wheel. Lossen the bolt that holds the two shafts together, slide them together as far as they'll go, and re-tighten the bolt. It's that simple... to stop that annoying rattle.
