I have notice a deep harmonic sound comming from my front end.It seems to change with vibration level changes. Any thoughts as to what it is?.

Wheel bearing? Brake pad / caliper sticking? Short of those two things I can't imagine anything that could make a loud enough sound to be heard when riding.

do you still have the cup-o-matics on the front ? The stock tires on my bike cupped so bad that there was a vibration and noise coming from the front-end. Where I work they strictly enforce the 25MPH limit on a wonderfully curvy campus road, every slight (and I do mean slight) lean into the corners would start the noise from the front end and some vibration, going straight it was not so noticeable. I might never have noticed it if I was not forced to take those corners at such slow speeds. New tire fixed the problem.
