1963 Western Flyer girls 3 speed

I still have my first bike - a 1963 Western Flyer 3 speed with shifter in the handlebar grip. In great condition for it's age. I had the front fork replaced about 10 years ago when I saw it had been pushed back in my dad's garage. So the bike is blue but the fork is a faded red. How much does this reduce the value of the bike? What might it be worth in good condition? I used to baby it as a kid, cleaning it and taking good care of it. Thanks!
