If I understand correctly;

Most probably the tires are out of balance. Take the tires out to a tire shop to check the balance of them. When the tires get older and older the balance of them may go bad.

In my opinion, if the U Joint was bad, you would hear a metallic noise in that area like this.

When the U joint is the cause of the vibration, you will feel it in the footpegs more than anywhere else.
