The reason I suggested head bearings Stan, was because some years ago I was riding my 1938 Prototype Clubman Scott quite fast over a not too smooth a track at a Beaulieu Motor Museum show and the girder forks started juddering quite badly as if they we’re bottoming out, especially when braking. No problems on normal roads. When I got home and checked them out, I found the forks and spring were ok but a fair amount of play had developed in the head bearings. Bearings and cups were replaced and the problem disappeared.
