It sounds like you could easily make your Propeller computer with a Propeller QuickStart board and a Propeller Human Interface Board, both available from Parallax. Those will cost about $50 together (plus S&H) and you won't have to solder anything.
Shameless plug: I used a Propeller to create a 6502 computer and just this week I succeeded in emulating the Apple-1 with it. See http://www.propeddle.com.
