Not DH cranks, it looks like they are an OEM pair of turbines - they would have been specced on a complete bike and manufactured to suit - maybe a Kona?

Any ideas on model or year?

I'll be checking our archive but just if you can remember offhand :D

It's definitely a Turbine model - they made various different versions BITD to hit specific price points for OE customers or even custom product. That's probably what your is - an OEM Turbine - suitable for DH or SS

Is it possible to date and identify a set of raceface cranks?

Mine are marked as 175's with a serial number of 1307 stamped in.

The red cranks are Turbine DH cranks

Splendid.

Going to have to strip them and repaint or powdercoat as they are a bit battered.

What is the difference between the LP and DH turbines?

DH's are a bit beefier, omitted the milling out of the side of the arms (which happened to all a bit later), and have that reinforcing granny ring.
Late 90's

These will be off at the weekend, I'm sure someone posted interest? The bottom bracket is more likely to be a syncros ti than a race face, will find out soon. It needs new bearings so I'll buy and fit some as required then it'll all be up for sale.
