i had lots of raleigh choppers but on a downhill they handled real bad unless you locked your arns straight to prevent what we call a tank slapper then after a while we put longer forks in a improved the high speed steering

My Ross Apollo suffers a similar handling problem - lots of flex in the front triangle - once the shimmy begins, it can get a little hairy.

Man I'm sure these things handled like shit but the seats & the shifters are amazing.

I had a Ross Apollo 5 speed it didn't last long and my parents were bummed.
Yamaha Moto-bike was next and when the head tube snapped off they were Really bummed.
