search craigs for cheap bikes, used motors, or wash cars, flip burgers, whatever it takes. we've all been there. not too many rich people are building toy motorcycles...
I have a favorite saying. "If you're gonna have a party, ya gotta pay the band". In fact I want my tomb stone to read, "Paying The Band".

Hobbies are like everything else. If you want to participate you have to work for it.
I built my first two hot rods from lawn mowing money. And hot rods are a lot more expensive than motorized bicycles. If you want it bad enough you have to work for it.
I was only 13 when I started my first hot rod project. My parents weren't rich so if I wanted to build a car I had to find the money. I did. So can you; if you want it bad enough.
