Subject: [CR]DeRosa History Question

After issuing its' beautiful Anniversary edition, DeRosa issued three Heritage Models in the '90s. the first was a replica of a '50s bike, I'm not sure of the designation. Then there was a Heritage 65 Model in white. This was followed by a Heritage 73 Molteni, in Molteni orange. My question is, was the Heritage 65, which was white, a replica of the Faema team bikes? The Heritage Model has World Champion Stripes, but seems to lack the dark head tube background of the Faema bikes (which were also white, I believe) I have seen in pictures. I am wondering exactly what this Heritage 65 was a replica of? Any DeRosa sharpies out there who could say? The reason I am asking is I have just acquired a super mint Heritage 65 Model which I probably will use as trading stock soon, and I would like to know what I am talking about before showing it to folks..
