Beginning in '74 BMW placed the master cylinder under the tank on models using a front disc brake. Some complained that this remote location was a PIA for maintenance. My experiience has been that once a properly operating m/c is installed only periodic inspection is required. BMW tanks were designed with a cavity allowing for m/c fitment and clearrance.
I also llike the look of an uncluttered handlebar and I'm in process of building a hardtail evo Sporty so I'm looking for a small m/c to fit under the tank I'll have to modify. If you go the hidden m/c route let me know what you've found to use for your master cylinder.
You might also consider stainless brake lines. They make for a tighter brake and are less maintenance needy. Good luck!
