I would start with checking the front wheels to make sure the wheel bearing preload is good. Jack up the tire or the whole front of the cruiser and grab the tire at the top and bottom and push and pull make sure it is tight with no movement

Then check your front end alignment.

Also how old are the tires and were they balanced?

I'd also check tire pressure. Additionally, if your camber is off then your axle housing is bent or the trunion bearings are shot.
