1980s Fuji Suncrest

Hi. I just this summer dug an old MTB (1980s Fuji Suncrest) out of the shed and started commuting on it. I now find myself hearing lots of SNICK sounds from the area of the bottom bracket, and I'm looking for hints on what tools I need to take the BB apart and grease it, hoping that will do the trick.

I'm really enjoying my commute (20 miles round trip) so far, and love that I'm losing some weight into the bargain. Who knows, I might become a bike fanatic yet.

Welcome Jorah. The folks in the Classic & Vintage forum or the Bicycle Mechanics forum may be able to help.
