Crankset needs replacing

So, I have a 1980's Raleigh Capri that needs its crank-set replaced. My problem is finding the parts that fits or is compatible. Here's what my current set looks like. (10 speed)

Why do you need it replaced? Teeth don't look too bad.

+1 this. The steel chainrings ought to last forever, as well.

Worn chainring teeth look real pointy. Yours, at least on the smaller chainring, still look fairly rounded.
