I can think of two things that would cause this. First, a worn, cupped 
or under inflated front tire. Second, dry or overtightened neck 
bearings. My guess would be the second. If the neck bearings are 
adjusted too tight, you will have a very hard time making a smooth turn 
and will tend to wobble through it. Not really noticeable at higher speeds.
If wobble is not caused by front end, maybe a seriously out of round 
rear tire might cause a problem like that. I've never seen that happen, 
but I suppose it's possible.I would try loosening the adjusting nut on 
the fork stem just a tad first and see if that helps.
