y = a + (b1*Sin[t/c] + b2*Cos[t/c])*Exp[-t/d]  gives a better fit:
the root-mean-square residual is .291, compared to .327 for the
sine-only model. The difference is statistically significant
(assuming the residuals are i.i.d. normal), and the plot looks
better. The parameter estimates are
a = 54.5192, b1 = 2.22174, b2 = -0.60541, c = 82.0552, d = 2661.24
