Gene Hackman

The Twisted Wreckage

from Bloody Bike Crash

1/21/2012 5:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gene Hackman bike damage photos

You're looking at the mangled remains of the bicycle Gene Hackman was riding when he was struck by a car last week ... remains that Hackman has decided to KEEP as a memento.

TMZ has learned ... Hackman's wrecked Trek mountain bike was brought to the Key Largo Bike Tours and Adventures shop days after the January 13 accident in the Florida Keys.

Sources tell us ... judging from the condition of the bike, it appears Hackman was hit from behind, because the back tire was almost completely folded in half from the impact.

We're told Hackman's people asked the shop to repair the bike ... and replace all of the damaged parts ... but they made it clear, Gene wants to KEEP all of the broken pieces ... including the twisted tire.

Total cost of the repairs are expected to run Hackman a few hundred bucks. Good thing he's rich.

If he's keeping it as a memento, why fix it?
It's not even a decent bike, nice pedals.

He's getting it fixed because he grew up in a time when you didn't trow things out because they need repair. Something more of us should do to save stuff from being tossed into landfills.

YEP, PRETTY MUCH... AVG BIKES. TREK BIKES RANGE $500-$800 ON AVERAGE WITH A FEW MODELS OVER A GRAND. PRETTY MUCH THE NORM IN PRICE RANGE FOR FAMILY STYLE MOUNTAIN BIKES. THE PICS SHOW AN OLD STYLE MODEL. NOT MUCH TO BRAG ABOUT. DUDE IS BETTER OFF JUST BUYING A NEW MODEL. HE CAN AFFORD IT, LOL... #TRUTH!!

I don't really like older men but I love Gene Hackman and I'd do him. At least I'd do whatever it is you can do with a guy that age. Get well soon, Gene. Love, Gretel

The spokes put a lot of force on the rim. Even hitting a big pothole could cause this damage.

Why would he have to pay for it at all?? Shouldn't the person that hit him pay to fix it - Or was this a hit and run?
