Always best to follow the forum rules and prefix the ad with 'FS', 'wanted' or even 'karma'.

Otherwise, if you put a 'wanted' ad up, you get people like me looking at the ad, thinking 'I'd quite like some 165mm cranks, I wonder if they're Campy? Or perhaps a track set'. And everyone's time has been wasted.

Here endeth the lesson.

IIRC, 165mm was a relatively easy to find track crank. Is this for a single speed project?

The magic word is 'Pista' (Italian for 'track'):-

Or there's this Andel take on Campagnolo pista...

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Andel-Classic-Track-Cranks-Chainset-Fixed-165mm-/320576507469?pt=UK_sportsleisure_cycling_bikeparts_SR#ht_1852wt_1139

Never seen one of these in the flesh, so no idea what these are like, but potentially a cheaper option. Velosolo.co.uk do these too, and for cheaper without a ring if you don't need one. But they're out of stock til Septmeber.
(Worth noting they're JIS taper unlike Campy ones, in case you need a BB too.)

I have a new and unused pair of Zenith 165mm track cranks for sale for £42 plus £3 postage; they are very similar to the Andells and almost certainly came out of the same factory:
