Hi Nightengale,
don't install anything there that'll stick out to rip the rider's nuts off in a collision.
Sub-surface pushbuttons or flush slider switches should work good and look neat.
If you are bitched for space under there, small microswitches that work relays mounted someplace with more room would work.
BTW, I understand that some States have strict laws about where a killswitch should be placed.
As this build is designed to attract attention the local law is liable to be all over it looking for the least infringement.
