Help Me Identify - Breezer Frame with Crazy BMX Build???

First off, I'm not sure this is the right sub-forum for this post. Feel free to suggest other spots for it!

So there was this guy selling a bunch of old bikes out in front of his house. I bought a bike for $80. Fat aluminum tubes, no identifying marks anywhere on the frame, nexus 7 hub, 700cc wheels, tektro brakes. I think I pinned the frame down to a Breezer Villager. But it's got this weird build with a bunch of BMX parts:

Dotek crank, Schwinn BMX grips, Salsa moto ace stem, Kalloy seat post, Schwinn saddle.

Anybody got any thoughts on this? I'm thinking I'll either build it up with racks for around town grocery hauling, or set it up to haul the Chariot for even more hauling, or see if it's hot pinkness and low gearing will tempt my 16 year old daughter into doing more riding...

Knock Yourself Out ..

IGH is simpler to teach some one 'the Gears' than a complex 8 by 3 derailleur set.

Kick stand and a rack to carry school books and a lock to keep it a while.

Worth it for the parts...

I would add fenders and rack and turn the 16 year old loose with it.
