Get a picture of that bottom bracket, and the dropouts (drive side).

That looks quite a bit like a 24" Azonic cruiser frame that I used to have.

Sourcing a derailleur hanger is going to be your biggest obstacle.
I consider myself a student of the game, it's just too bad I'm in special ed...

Its an azonic steelhead, 06 model i believe. It has horizontal dropouts and can be used with 24 or 26" wheels. Standard 68/73mm BB I believe. Just your run of the mill freeride HT with a steel frame. I forget if it has a built in derailleur hanger, pretty sure its the same as the 07, you buy a bolt on hanger if you want to run gears. If you do, make sure to convert your axle to bolt on and get chain tensioners to hold the axle in place and keep from slipping in the horizontal mounts. I can get pictures of what i mean if you want. I don't get why you want 5 speeds? 8 or 9 I could see, but 5? Thats old school. So old school it seems not worthwhile.

ive got that exact frame. im also running a 5 sp but with no derailleur. im running 5 cogs, and a phantom gear. i have a buncha old cogs laying around so i took one and threw it in right before the cassette to act as a chain tensioner. i just keep a few of em in my truck so when i go out dj'in i have em handy if i wanna bump up or down a gear, and just throw the appripriate cog in for tension. never thought it would work when i first heard of it, but it works wonders and its dirt cheap idea
