Default Inventing continuously-recharging solar bike

Here's a simple electric bike design that should be light and not have to have an additional trailer to hold the panels. I want a bike that can recharge itself when I lock it up outside of a store while running errands during the day. To this end, I'm going to weld two 25w (nominal) panels to the rear rack of a class-1 pedelec that has a 250w mid-drive. I will be using a "ming-he" boost charge controller to charge the 48v (nominal) battery off the 12v (nominal) panels.
Thoughts?
