WTB: Campagnolo (Campy) cranks, crankset

(Finally signed on the Premium Membership so I could post a WTB)

Looking to replace my Avocet cranks with Campagnolo, Record or Super Record, double chainring. Not looking for new-in-box or show quality (well, wouldn't turn it away), but not war-zone condition either. Need 170mm length (UPDATE: it's been pointed out to me I should be open to longer cranks. 61.5cm frame, I have a 32" inseam; I just always rode 170's), English pedal threading. No bottom bracket is just fine if that's what you have. Open to ideas on chainrings, I'm used to 53/42 but I could see running 52/45... or what have you? In extremis, my 144BCD rings seem OK and could transfer over if there are no rings and the BCD is the same. Nice dust caps would be a great plus, but not a deal breaker.

(Looks like I just missed out on a Super Record set here... bummer).

Fully expecting it might take a while, and a couple of bumps, to locate a set. Yeah, there are sets on eBay but was hoping to perhaps come in below eBay asking prices...

​​​​Set of clean NR cranks. There are marks but no real pedal rub. Rings have some symmetrical tooth wear, but good for many miles, and Chainring faces are very good looking. The chainring bolts look really nice, there is no marring or rust, inside or out. (no rust remover used). Bolts and washers are included, not shown. Shipping to Lower 48 incl.
Dust caps not included, I have some NOS, and some more worn ones available. Neither are original to these cranks... post more pictures later, as they have to be retaken.

Be aware of the CPSC differences when you buy a Campagnolo crank. The 73 shown above is pre CPSC based on the date and the larger built up area on the back side. Post CPSC have less of a built up area. Different spindles are required.

Check out photos in this BF thread to see the actual differences.

According to Chuck's Campagnolo Timeline:

1978
C.P.S.C. (Consumer Product Safety Commission) mandates changes to NR/SR. Included are a front derailleur lip, 2.5 mm increase in spacing between crank spider and arm to clear the front derailleur lip with corresponding increase in bottom bracket axle length, a curved quick release lever and ball-end added to quick release conical adjuster, dome-shape added to quick release cam lever on brake calipers, plastic covering added to the wheel guides on the brake shoes, and plastic safety-shields added to rear derailleur screws.

Photo of difference pre CPSC (center) and "post" CPSC (outer arms)... Apparently Campy was trying to get ahead of the curve, which makes sense from a sales/stocking perspective.
Note the date code on the right, is a 7 in the diamond. Left is an 8 in the diamond, the center arm is the pre-CSPC design, with a 3 in the diamond and the beefier center " bulge".
