Hello and welcome to the forum.

I'm 99% sure that your speedo is cable operated.After time the inner cable begins to wear into the outer cable and it catches.This is whats happening when yours flicks up and down.Sometimes you can improve the problem by trying to straighten out the run of the cable,other times a new one will be needed.

Hope this helps.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
