Could be headset is loose, or if the bike has done a good few miles might be a symptom of worn / missing / damaged bearings or bushes.

Unfortunately for a lot of headset work you need special spanners, and if you need to remove it altogether a press.

Would recommend taking it to a friendly local bike shop. If it's a simple tightening job they may do it there and then free of charge (or for a nominal fee). Anything more complicated and it would be cheaper to pay them to fix it, then buy the equipment you need to do the job.

Or you need to be very handy with a length of dowel and a mallet :thumbsup:

Not to tighten it depending on how the headset setup, I could of used an spanner or alan key to tighten mine.
