Newbie wants tools to service old Trek bike

I'm getting back into biking after a layoff of a few years. Just picked up a 1982 Trek 613 road bike and would like to start collecting the tools needed to service it. What are the basic tools I'd need to service the BB, hubs, etc. I have basic mechanics tools but nothing bike specific other than a Ripley Alien multitool. This bike is 100% original and looks to be barely ridden over it's life. It rides nice, but I'm assuming it has never been serviced and probably has old grease, etc.

Thanks!
