ITMB paper maps of Central America are good detail, sold on line
InMexico buy a QUIMERA road atlas or the GUIA ROJI both have lots of detail, get the $12 style, magazine size for bike use. Until you get to Mexico any single sheet fold out map of the country will be okay for general route planning.

How much do you want to spend? I saw a DL650 for 85,000 pesos recently. There are not many used bikes around but if you need help I can look around for you.

Check MercadoLibre México - Donde comprar y vender de todo. but it will be difficult to find anything in that price range. I think you should get something in the USA.
