Bought two bikes headed for the scrap heap. One was a huffy ( gave it to a friend in need of a 10 speed ) the other was a jansen 5speed. It appears to be a mid-grade, late 70's made in japan . Never heard of the name.

Jan Janssen? Like this one? https://link.marktplaats.nl/194325696

He's Dutch, and won the TdF in 1968. First Dutchman to do so. He was crying he realized it. Later he started a bike company bearing his name.

Or maybe your bike is a 'Jansen' with only one 's' ...
