Nice! I would love to see a picture of it. Sounds comfy.I use an old Hardrock for commuting. It's got a really long stem, biggest pile of spacers you've ever seen, riser stem and riser bars. Rigid fork, taller gearing and puncture-resistant tyres. It's also got reflective tape stuck all over it for the dark nights. Does the job.
It looks like a pile of crud! ;0) I never clean it, just throw some oil at the chain occasionally, and use it in all weathers so it's always black. It's not too comfortable actually. Although it has an upright riding position the bars are at a funny angle so it hurts your wrists a bit. As it's just a hack made out of whatever bits I had in the shed I don't care.I would love to see a picture of it. Sounds comfy.
