There ya go! strip that puppy right down to its crank set.
Extra parts are never a bad thing, just remember to ziplock bag the small stuff and slip a post it note in the bag with what it is and the sizes.
May I suggest you take a look at any of the 26" Micargi Beach Cruiser bikes, very beefy and can be had in various models. If your after shear strength then Workman bicycles are pretty much indestructible, I've seen those frames survive getting hit by cars.
