There are a few Guzzi places to get spares from these are in no order of merit 
Ray Dunkley Ex Smoking Biker has some spares not sure what
For new and used spares Gutsibits are helpful and knowlegeable
Used spares Pete at Reboot (In France but quick to get parts to UK)
Getting gearbox and engine work also some spares Nigel at NBS Staffordshire
Stainless Exhaust and other Stainless parts Roy at OS Motorcycles Staffordshire
New Parts Stein Dense Germany website in English
Teo Lammers Holland but Website in English
Also don't be put off looking at Harpers in The USA

Remember the Spada NT shares engine, Gearbox most cycle parts with ALL the other 850/1000cc bikes of that era it is only the "cosmetic" bits that vary 
The charging system Bosch same as used on BMW bikes of same era
The ign switch is actually Fiat ... key is a Zadi blank 
manuals owners and workshop ones can be found on Greg Bender This old tractor website scroll down there are also colour wiring Diagrams there 

hope this helps

By the way centre stand off any of the 850-1000 guzzis will fit it needs a set of bushes/spacers they are alloy designed to wear rather than the stand or frame ..... side stands vary some are way better than others

The best side stand is one off a G5 the calis have flootboards but the G5/Stone and Cali sport have footpegs you would need wither a bracket welding on or swap bottom rail BUT the sidestand on those bikes is a couple of foot long totally stable well worth the effort if you are stripping bike down

if you look at a manual, they often include decent diagrams to use the Cali type side stand you need fabricate a bracket ..... well worth it as the huge cali side stand is the best out there when out and about take a look at ANY Guzzi california and look at the side stand ....

I have a Triumph/Bsa side stand that has a bracket made to suit the Guzzi frame....it's much improved over the Guzzi mousetrap one ...more discreet than the G5/Cali and it does not require frame welding .
