Description

ISBN: n/a

To commemorate the bravery and memory of Gerard "Biscuits" Baptiste, who was assigned to FDNY Ladder 9 and made the ultimate sacrifice on 9/11/02, the surviving members of his unit and the motorcycle community pushed ahead and began the process of restoration of a derelict motorcycle - a 1979 Honda CB750LTD - that Gerard had purchased only a few weeks before his death and had intended to restore. The documentary depicts the restoration process of the FDNY Dream Bike, something that took 15 months of work by large corporations, local businesses and individuals who donated time, effort, and materials to complete the project. Includes much insight into the camaraderie and brotherhood that unites FDNY firefighters, their road to recovery, and how they honor their fallen brothers. 60 minutes.
