I've got an old Schwinn Super Sport, beautiful condition and all with a Suntour Aero 52-42 crankset. It's just that it'll emit this blunt 'click' noise once every revolution in the same spot, especially if pedaling hard. It's really gotten on my nerves, and to the best of my knowledge the problem developed recently.
Any of you guys have experience or suggestions? I'm not sure if I should check the pedals, the crankset, BB, or what. I don't want to have to replace the bottom bracket/crankset. Anyway, thanks a lot, appreciate all the help.

In my 20 years of experience, it's most often loose chain ring bolts. But it can be other stuff. Also check that the crank is not hitting anything else like the front derailer or chain stay.

Mine did that. It took a full day of trial and error until I found out it was my seat. ARRRGGHH!!

I had dirt on the pedal threads causing the same noise.

Ah. Thanks for the great help from everybody. Turns out it was the chainring bolts (great link from Gonzo).
Don't you just hate those mystery clicks and creaks? Anyway, problem solved.
