There is a lot to charging batteries or running inverters(dc to 120ac). It also depends on the type of batteries you use.
If you just want to see what you can attain then you certainly can mount a small DC motor with a 2 to 3 inch rubber wheel on it to your bike frame with the small wheel touching the rear tire.
As a point of reference a trained competition cyclist can do a sustained 1/4 hp.
There are 746 watts in one hp so 746/4 = 186.5 watts. Not a lot but it can do real work if utilized properly.
