Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
Directed by John Allison, FDNY Dream Bike revolves around the story of Gerard Baptiste, a young New York City firefighter who died tragically during the September 11th, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center. Just two weeks before his death, Baptiste bought a used 1979 Honda CB750 for 100 dollars from a street sale in Manhattan's East Village. When his plans of fixing the bike were tragically halted, the survivors of Ladder 9 resolved to restore it in his honor. After 15 months of labor, not only was the bike restored to its former glory, but was dubbed the "FDNY Dream Bike."
