I think the rear hub on a multi-speed bike is normally wider than the single-speed coaster-break hub. I'm not sure if you can make up the difference with spacers, or squeeze the frame together, or what, but something to keep in mind at least.
Also, some multi-speed bikes have horizontal dropouts, some don't, but you need them to adjust chain tension with the single-speed.
