New tamdem - identify crank

Hi,
I've acquired an early '90s Burley Zydeco and am trying, with some success, to identify the components. It has and eight-speed cluster on a Shimano freehub, but I can identify the cogs. More to the point of this thread, The crank is 170mm, but I can't identify the Manufacturer - something like Tra*cer. I can't make out the fourth character - need some help.

PS: it employs thumb-shifters; would like to know that supplier, too. The rest I have.

your cranks are TRACER. i've seen them on a similar bike labelled as NORCO when we were up in Quebec City last summer.

Thanks for the help.
Now about the thumb shifters for this early 1990s Burley Zydeco?
Anyone know?

Probably the same as the rear mech. As already noted, photos make it easier...

That's right, Tracer. Tracer cranks came on our 2000 KHS Tandemania Comp. Seem like perfectly OK generic cranks.
