Need help Identifying a rear hub please.

I was planning on buying a new hub for pretty cheap from a guy but he has no idea what kind of hub it is. He thinking it came off of a Banshee Amp. But he also said the friend he got the hub from usaully always installs aftermarket parts on his bikes. So we both are unsure of the hub. Anybody have any idea what hub this is?

Generic, relatively low-end hub, most likely from Taiwan. I base that on the spoke holes which lack any elbow relief (extra manufacturing step), and mainly on the steel threaded axle with a cheap, stamped lockwasher.

Looks like a Joytech hub. Possibly one of the D142 variants. Not a high quality hub by any means.
