That looks like a Vespa large windshield that has been modified to fit the buddy:

I understand that windshields are a personal preference. To me the one pictured looks like overkill. Way too big for the Buddy 50. It would probably slow you down. I would recommend this one instead: https://www.scooterworks.com/Prima-Windscreen-Medium-Universal-Mirror-Mount-P12248.aspx

Doesn't require modification to fit your Buddy, quality built and reasonably priced. With the money you save you can get a pair of top quality riding gloves to cover your hands.

If you're looking for hand protection in the winter, get a reasonable size windshield and a set of these. You can get them fairly cheap on Ebay. Easy to remove in the summer:

Those are a much better alternative!
Get those and the Cuppini Short windshield. It's probably the best fitting windshield available for the Buddy, and it's not truly 'short'.
(I trimmed mine down to obtain a true short windshield: http://www.modernbuddy.com/forum/topic30613.html )
