Bike trouble

Uh oh, I think I broke my bike.  I was going downhill just above 30mph when I went over a cover plate.  All of the sudden the forks and front wheel started wobbling wildly.  The brakes were hit and I came to a safe stop.

I thought I might have just wacked something really hard and just destabilized.  But, as soon as I got up to speed, I could feel the wobble again.  Crud.

Banging and twisting on the frame revealed nothing.  No obvious cracks in the paint are apparent.  Yet at any decent speed, I feel a low speed oscillation.  My distance chariot is down.  Call in Scotty to recover my ’02 Specialized Allez Elite.
