Definetly it's not a CODA crankset. It looks like an old "Standard" triple 110/74 but I'm not sure. Maybe an old Middleburn crank (based on the chainrings color)? Or a Sugino Impel? Doesn't seem like an old Ritchey. I know... I'm confused
Anyway, you can always check the original specs of your old Cdale bikes in this link where they scanned vintage catalogs from 1973 to our days.

Not CODA, not Cannondale. Looks like some kind of chi-chi crankset given the colors. Since it was made in the USA, that should narrow it down some. It's not Suntour, Shimano or any other name brand. Lots of small companies made parts back then. Lots.

THere is no reason to believe the cranks are made in the US.

Agreed. Doubt those USA stamped rings are stock. Doesn't say anyplace under the crank arms? Doubt the BB is stock either if the rings were replaced.

EDIT: Sorta looks like an old XT(R) crank?

And that vintage cannondale site with the all the catalogs is GOLD. Love looking at some of those old school suspension designs.

XD indicates Sugino. They still make them.

As for the milling on the arms, is it on both arms? Looks like someone with a mill got bored, and decided to have some fun, as the XD's don't have that going on. :D

Also, the rings are aftermarket, no questions asked.

Yep 100% agree they are Sugino and someone with a mill got bored.... I have these sitting here at the shop and mine do not have that milled down edge detail they are just smooth across the top.

And here I thought XD indicated a childish obsession with text speak.
