It's quite stupid :D
The angle are the same and the lenghts also, so you can just make it straight, so less weight.

It's the old PMP crank from Italy. Some collectors will pay a lot for those...

It does'nt give anything; take a straight line from the pedal axle to the crank axle and you have the effective crank arm lenght.
