Lads there was no play in headstock atall and the discs were only .2 mm out so I think it was the bumps on the very old and lumpy tyre

Tread pattern can cause issues when the tire wears as well.
I remember an old bike I had came with Dunlop D207 that that "S" shape tread pattern.
When the tire had a few miles on it, I would get a wiggle in the bars constantly.

I thought steering head bearings, wheel bearings, etc.
But then I replaced the Dunlop with Pirelli (which had a different tread pattern) and no more problems.
