Listing Update...I only have one of these retail boxed cranksets left in stock.
This offering is for a new-old-stock Campagnolo (Campy) Record double crankset with 170 mm crankarms and 53x39 Ultra-Drive chainrings. As most folks know, the Campy Record groupset is top-end and according to catalog research, this crankset appears to have been in current production from 2004 to 2006. The tell-tale spec. that narrows the production window is the anti-friction treatment we see on the Ultra-Drive chainrings. We do not see this treatment on Campy Record chainrings prior to 2004. We also noted the Campy Record crankset design remained relatively unchanged until 2007...when the "Ultra Torque" Recrod crankset was introduced.
It's compatible with a square tapered bottom bracket and english threaded pedals with a 9/16" spindle (all of which are fairly standard). Having said this, please note the Record crankset from around the above mentioned period has a much lower profile relative to some of Campy's lower level cranksets. As a result, these Record double crankset require a much shorter bottom bracket spindle length...102 mm...to achieve proper chainline (and we would also recommend staying with ISO tapers if considering a non-Campy bottom bracket).
The quality of this Ultra Drive chainrings is excellent. The advanced design/geometry (of the 53T ring in particular) includes multiple pins/grooves that facilitate the upshift of the chain to this larger chainring, as well as set points of specifically designed chainring teeth to facilitate the downshift to the smaller chainring. We should also mention these are "machine-cut" rings (as opposed to "stamped", like Campy's lower-end rings), so the final production/machining is extremely precise. This will result in minimal drivetrain noise (from chainring teeth/chain interaction), even wear and precise shifting for the life of these chainrings. Couple these chainring design enhancements with the Campy Record specific anti-friction treatment and some would argue there may not be better quality chainrings available (or at the very least, these Record chainrings make the "short list").
With respect to condition, these are new cranksets with little shopwear. They are retail packaged, but have been in storage for nearly 10 years, so we are seeing some minor blemishes/marks (but the few cranksets we have in this model still show fairly well overall). Additionally, each offering will include factory matched crankbolts and washers, as well as Campagnolo installation/reference materials.

Note to international customers regarding shipping...
We apologize to those that feel some of our international shipping charges are too high. We only charge actual shipping rates, but once an order exceeds a certain amount, we hesitate to use the least expensive US Postal Services First Class International service. We feel this way, because this service is not trackable or insurable...so more risk of loss. We prefer the US Postal Services Priority Mail International service for more expensive orders, because this service is trackable at USPS.com and insurable...so less risk of loss. Unfortunately, this service is more expensive, especially for smaller/lighter packages, relative to the First Class International service. We are sorry about these higher shipping costs, but hopefully our notes help to explain why this is the case.
Note to international customers regarding customs...
We also apologize to those that feel their country import taxes, duties and brokerage fees are excessive. As a small US business, we are required by customs' laws to declare each order as a retail sale. Additionally, the declared order value must be equal to total store purchases and/or winning auction bids (less any shipping costs, as these are not considered in the declared value). As a result, each customer will be responsible for paying his/her own country taxes, duties and brokerage fees, which will be collected upon delivery. Again, we apologize for these additional costs, but we cannot afford the penalties and fines that come with breaking customs' laws...so we have to strictly abide by them.
