I would like to do maintenance on my 1982 miyata 310 road bike myself. What tools are necessary to take the entire bicycle apart, lube, and put it back together?
Here is what I have come up so far:
- Bicycle stand
- Hex wrench set
- Chain breaker

It depends to what level you want to disassemble. For general cleaning your list is a good start. As you dig deeper though you'll also need:
To service/adjust drivetrain
To service wheels/hubs
To service cranks/pedals/bottom bracket
To service forks/stem/head tube
As @Chef Flambe mentions it can be more economical to buy a kit containing many of these tools. This will give you a head start and you can buy the specific tools you need for your bike, as well as upgrade to better quality for the tools you use frequently.
Probably should add a few spare parts/supplies to have around:
