I have a neighbours daughters bike to fix at the moment. The freehub is totally seized. I've removed the freehub from the hub itself, but can't identify it nor have I see any like it. It doesn't have a separate locking screw and screws into the hub itself.

It looks similar to a DMR, Halo, or Sun freehub but it's only a cheap hub. The one that looks closest so far is the DMR. Yet the DMR has what looks like an aluminium bit at the end of the thread:

Pictures of the freehub are here:

you might be out of luck with these ones. Probably would be easier to replace the whole rear hub and re-lace the wheel. – trailmax Jul 18 '13 at 23:51
What did the freehub cost from Silverfish? I've been on there looking for the same thing but couldn't find it. – user8194 Sep 21 '13 at 21:45

The freehub turned out to be a Formula freehub. I managed to source it from Silverfish UK.
