Sourcing a FRONT derailleur hanger

Struggling to source a front derailleur hanger for a 'new' end of line frame I picked up from ebay.

It is an Eastway Emitter, a Wiggle own brand, and they can't/won't help source one.

The issue is that any hangers listed online are listed by make and model they fit, not the centre to centre measurement of the mounting bolts. I need one that has a flat mount to the frame and the bolts are 21mm apart,c-c.

Anyone got a frame with a similar hanger, so I can search for that make and model?

Loads of shops that specialise in rear derailleur hanger, bit more difficult to find front ones!

    just had a look in the workshop but nothing with 21c-c however this shouldn't matter - find one that fits flush as needed then just drill holes in the hanger as needed. jobs a fish.

    I think I have found one that is 20mm, so will drill that out as first option. The one I ordered originally thinking the spacing was standard (why would I think any specification on a bike was standardised) is too short to even drill out.

    I dont think band on will work due to the tube shape where it is flattened to take the hanger.

    One of my friends mentioned going 1x. But recommendation was to get a narrow/wide chainring or the chain would drop often. This then became an issue to source for the current 5800 4 bolt shimano crankset I already have which is almost new. This build was a replacement for a crashed frame and was hoping to avoid buying too many new bits.

    Thanks for the input though.
