check the speedo cable -- it might have worn inside. that'll be the easiest and cheapest thing to try first.

if its not that check the clocks then the gearbox. but try the easiest one first ie the speedo cable!

speedo cable has snapped and its making intermitant contact and thats why the speed rises and falls or the speed drive has worn in the clocks

easy to test . repmove the clocks and pull the inside of the speed cable . if it slide out you cable is duff
