The old damping attempt is interesting. I know of a couple of other CMP owners in UK who have fitted dampers.

As for my C60s, after the front wheel pivot bearing re-shimming in the summer is has no "Shimmy" and drives the perfectly, the best it has ever been in my ownership.
So despite all the other work carried out that made slight improvements, the real clincher is getting the shimming right: tight, but not too tight!
