Oh that looks nice. That is awesome.
If you're interested, here's the details:
The picture is shot into the sun (the sun is 3° to the left of center).
The bike was completely off, light is reflected from behind the camera; the headlight glow is therefore 100% sunlight reflected from behind me into the headlight and back out into the camera lens. (This is why the directionals have a different glow than the headlight, and each is different than the other.)
Photoshop, the sun flare is real, the exposure is not
adjusted (although several shots at different exposures were taken to get that 70's feel). (This is why the peg on the left is hazy--it's in the sun, the right is crisp and clear--it's in the bike's shadow.)
The single lens reflection (the hot spot in the upper right) was achieved with a simple lens to get only bounce--today's lenses have more glass elements and are prone to more bounces, so a very simple fixed lens (no zoom) with just a few elements was used, no lens hood (tried a hood and it worked, didn't like the resulting image as it lost the "feel"). It was a bit of fun to get the right distance from the bike so the distortion looked right and the headlight still reflected the light into the camera lens. (The closer you get to an object, the bigger the front of the object looks, and the smaller the back of the same object looks. Remember, fixed-lens, no zoom to help frame the shot!)
A lot of the 70's magazine shots weren't highly staged and therefore contained more real-world feel to them, so the background isn't perfect. (Ads were shot in a sterile studio featuring the product and maybe a model, articles were shot in the real world.) The bike is wiped down, the tire is not--they didn't do that back then.
The only "fake" items in the picture are the.... (can you guess?)
It's the horizon. By getting the right angle trees and clouds are created. Again, it's all camera angle, no editing other than cropping the image.
The motivation for this shot was the weather (35°F but it looked like a summer day) and the foot pegs. The stock pegs and mirrors will be replaced with something modern, so the retro look is a limited opportunity. Being minimalistic, the handlebars have that retro look and feel, so the bike is a natural from this angle (the cables are hidden), especially with the down-tubes.
